Fixed-term employees must receive the same treatment as full-time permanent staff.
The ending of a fixed term contract is a dismissal in law and as such care must be taken to ensure genuine and legitimate reasons for fixed term contracts to expire.
Zero hour contracts are also known as casual contracts.
Zero hour contracts are usually for ‘piece work’ or ‘on call’ work.
Zero hour workers are entitled to annual leave and the National Minimum Wage in the same way as other employees.
There are laws against preventing workers on zero hours from working elsewhere.
